Roggenbier All Grain Recipe

About a year and half ago I brewed the second version of this Roggenbier which was roughly 42% Rye.  I really enjoyed it, but wanted to do it again with even more rye.  I love the bite the rye gives the beer.  This time I bumped up the rye to 60% and it is super nice.  I also used a trappist yeast in this version to give the beer a fruity punch.  I know it is no longer a Roggenbier, but oh well!

As Always, I share my recipes. Fell free to use or abuse it. If you use it, drop me a comment here and let me know how it turned out or any improvements you would suggest.

    I made a Roggenbier last weekend using the recipe from the Brewing Classic Styles book. I can’t wait to try it.
